    How do i bill arginine(100mg) IV
    Clondine(1mg) PO

  2. Default Arginine is listed under the B codes
    According to my research, arginine is included in the list of drugs under the code B4155. These drugs are administered through a feeding tube, not an IV.

    The HCPCS code for clonidine (clonidine hydrochloride) is J0735 and the unit is 1 mg.

    Hope this helps!

    Assign J8999 - for "oral" clonidine.
    When billing with an NOC code, include on the claim, the narrative description reflective of the agent and the dose administered.
    NOC codes should only be reported for those drugs that do not have a valid HCPCS code which describes the drug being administered.
    Thanks

    This J code is for injectable clonidine not oral, MSRD is correct you will need to use the unlisted code.

    Its not J8999, that is for a Chemotheraputic drug given orally.
    J8499 is for the NON-Chemotheraputic drug given orally.
    Just an FYI

    So do I need to use j8499 for clonidine .1mg tablet given in office?
